Ed Richards to leave Ofcom at the end of the year

UK communications regulator Ofcom says Ed Richards, its Chief Executive, will be leaving at the end of December 2014. He joined the Ofcom board in March 2003 and became Chief Executive in October 2006.


Patricia Hodgson, Ofcom Chairman, said “Ed has been an outstanding Chief Executive. Under his leadership, Ofcom has helped to deliver superfast broadband, 4G, lower prices, innovation, competition, and sustainable public service broadcasting in the UK. He leaves an impressive legacy. On behalf of the Board I would like to thank him for his enormous contribution.”

Ed Richards said “It has been a privilege to lead Ofcom during such an exciting and dynamic period in the evolution of the UK’s communications sector. It is never easy leaving a job that you enjoy greatly but I have always felt that once I had completed eight years as Chief Executive this would be the right time to move on.”

Ofcom says it’s aiming to complete the recruitment process for a new Chief Executive in early 2015.
